Since their creation in the 1950s, fashion brand Original Penguin have been entrenched in music, a love affair that goes back through the decades. So they launched their much-lauded Plugged In sessions to showcase new and original musicians in intimate surroundings. Past acts include now-bestselling stars Jake Bugg and Miles Kane.
In 2014 Plugged In will take the year’s most ground-breaking artists and place them in London’s Hospital Club, a unique place to catch a glimpse of these true originals before they soar into the UK’s arenas.
The show is headlined by Gorgon City, the hotly-tipped house duo who are dominating dance floors. They’ve already had huge success with collaborations including ‘Ready for Your Love’ with MNEK, which made it into the top 5 and is fast becoming one of the biggest dance records of the year. Their debut album comes this summer, backed with a full headline tour.
You don’t get a sound more original than Wilkinson. From recording in his bedroom to getting signed by the hugely influential RAM Records, he mixes pioneering D&B with heavy basslines and polished vocals. He’ll be performing tracks from his debut album ‘Lazers Not Included’ and will be closing with a DJ set hosted by his MC, Ad Apt and guest vocals from Tom Cane on new single ‘Half Light’.
Completing the line-up is We The Wild. Their debut single ‘You Lost My Mind’ gained support at BBC Radio 1 and XFM and saw them likened to Everything Everything and Alt-J. With another EP due in May, now’s a great time to catch them.
